Massachusetts residents buy millions of products each year. Under the state’s consumer protection law they have a reasonable expectation that the manufacturer has included all relevant information about the product. This includes complete and accurate instructions on how to use it properly. The manufacturer also has to warn consumers about the dangers of using a product. However, this law also known as Massachusetts General Law 93A is a very vague law. Specific language only warns businesses that “unfair and deceptive practices” are illegal. Therefore a thorough knowledge of Massachusetts case law is needed to evaluate a specific situation.
